the price is right

If you’ve always dreamed of appearing on TV’s most popular game show, well then — come on down to the Palace Theatre for The Price is Right Live! This interactive stage version of the game pulls players from the audience, who compete for the chance to win appliances, vacations, and even new cars by guessing the prices of different merchandise; more than $10 million has been won over the course of the stage show’s nine-year history. June 7 at 7:30 p.m. $32.75-$52.75. • 19 Clinton Ave., Albany. 518-465-3334 or

guys and dolls

Based on Damon Runyon’s short stories about Prohibition-era New York City — and with a memorable score (“Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat”) by Frank Loesser — Guys and Dolls is considered to be one of Broadway’s all-time greatest musicals. From gangsters, gamblers, and showgirls to the do-gooders at the Save a Soul Mission, the show is chockablock with characters as unique as the city they inhabit. Catch the Westchester Broadway Theatre’s production of this multiple Emmy-winner through June 9. Call or visit Web site for exact schedule. $52-$80. • 1 Broadway Plaza, Elmsford. 914-592-2222 or
